Set against the backdrop of Chicago, the game opens with a heist by the character played by Aamir Khan.

What ensues is a thrilling, action-packed chase on super bikes through the mean streets of Chicago. To win, players have to overcome heavy traffic and dodge obstacles, collect coins and achieve the maximum score.
If you play sharp and smart, you can arm yourself with cool power-ups. While the powerful Sonic Pulse weapon will blow away everything in your path, the Shield protects you from traffic and bombs. Players can use the Nitro Boost to achieve maximum speed and zip ahead. Apart from the cool bikes and suit upgrades, these power-ups can help you improve your score and climb the Leaderboard.
